  • G’day Aussie Golfer – I reckon an article on the ‘best iPhone apps’ would be great. There’s a gamut of (mostly rubbish) apps on the market, but there are a few good uns like golfshot and the tiger woods swing one. What do you think?

    Keep up the good work, your site’s always a good read!

    I’ll have another look at it…
